I was so excited yesterday when, at the local farmer's market, I saw an adorable little stand called "twigs and roots."  The woman made her own natural deodorants, toothpastes, salves, and other things.  I spent $40 and got everything pictured above.

When I got home, the important work began.  First, Suzie Q had to inspect everything I purchased, to protect me of course.  And, thankfully, the objects passed Suzie's pretty inspection!

For myself, I bought this small paste for cuts that I can carry around with me.  With four nieces and nephews, it's going to come in handy this summer.  I also bought this really awesome smelling lavender deodorant, and my favorite thing of all--the cinnamint toothpaste!  It smells/tastes better than Whole Food's brands, and it was made by hand locally.  Double win!

Also, as a peek into a future "Creativity" post (God-willing), I bought gifts for my coworkers and/or students in Riyadh (I haven't decided yet).  I bought a huge bag of Herbal Bath Soak, and the woman was nice enough to give me these adorable mini burlap pouches.  I plan on filling each pouch with a little of the chamomile/lavender mixture and tying it to the woman's business card with directions on how to use it on the back.  It would make a really great face steam for the brutally dry Riyadh weather.  I can't wait!
